Greetings on the Opening of St Petersburg Ladies Trophy 2019 tournament

January 26, 2019

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the St Petersburg Ladies Trophy 2019 tournament, which is being held for the fourth time.

The message reads, in part:

“This year, the tournament once again brings together at the famous Sibur Arena many guests and devoted tennis fans who will cheer for the athletes they love, and support this honest, fair and beautiful sport. They will see famous women tennis players on the court, including winners in the most prominent international tournaments who are true stars. It is very important that this event has always been popular among young people, since the future of tennis both in Russia and across the world is in the hands of the younger generation.”
